Mission of Hope House of Wisconsin in New London has received several grants to help families during the economic and health crisis. A $3,000 grant from Clintonville Area Foundation supported operations. Two grants totaling $40,000 from the Basic Needs Giving Partnership allow them to work collaboratively with Forward Services, CAP Services and the Salvation Army to identify gaps in needed services to Waupaca County. The partnership is a collaboration between the U.S. Venture Open, the J. J. Keller Foundation, and regional community foundations, including the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region.
Mission of Hope also received two $10,000 grants from the COVID-19 Community Response Fund, facilitated by the Clintonville Area Foundation.
“These grants allowed us to maintain case management services to families struggling financially through the pandemic, along with providing us with the needed support to continue our ‘meet the need’ services that assist families with basic needs such as food, transportation vouchers, referral services and more,” says Andy Wilson, executive director. “The state-wide shutdown was difficult on many area families and Mission of Hope House was there to take those phone calls, make those connections, and ensure that families were safe and able to find a meal.”
